How to Update Cydia on the iPhone


Cydia is an application market for jailbroken iPhones. Using Cydia, you can download and install apps that have either been removed from or blocked from Apple's official App Store. If the version of Cydia you're running is out of date, the upgrade process is fairly straightforward and can be completed in a couple of minutes. By following a few steps, you can be sure you're running the latest version of Cydia.

  • Tap the "Cydia" icon on your iPhone's home screen.

  • Tap "Upgrade Essential" when the pop-up window appears. You'll only see this window if Cydia is in need of an upgrade.

  • Choose "Confirm" on the next screen and allow the Cydia upgrades to install.

  • Tap "Close Window" when the Cydia upgrades are finished installing.

  • Press the "Home" button to exit Cydia and then open the application once more.
